  1. When we devalue our youth, we shoot ourselves in the foot. Below extract is from an article on Stuart Armstrong in Dundee's Courier today. Link to full article is below the quote. "When the family relocated from Inverness to the outskirts of Dundee, Campbell seized an opportunity that had fallen into his lap. “I was at Inverness before I came to United,” he said. “I spoke to Scott Kellacher (in charge of the Caley Thistle academy) about us having a look at Stuart and I took an instant like to him. Basically, I asked his dad straight away if he’d like to join us at United. “I’m
  2. I am a big fan of Welsh but, with his dreadful injury record, that choice would probably make Doran de facto captain.
  3. I also was wondering about the away tops .. that's the timescale in the CEO's statement last weekend for them.
  4. That happened to me last week ... in Elgin 😁
  5. Wonder if James Anderson regrets his hand-out to the clubs now. He should have kept it for his club, Hearts.
  6. I must say that my vocabulary is definitely broadening with these club statements .... farrago ... scintilla ... 😁
  7. The MD of the other club (vote comments) is of course Nelms of Dundee. We now know the SPFL board member is McArthur of Dunfermline. So our statement is referring to both. Sorry if this is stating the blinking obvious.
  8. Maybe the fact that, without Hearts, Dundee Utd and ICT, Dundee should be red hot favourites to get promoted next season.
  9. I've seen an extract of the SPFL rules on social media that say a No vote could be retracted but a Yes vote couldn't. As you've alluded in the rest of your post, one could drive a bus through the rules surrounding the vote and how that vote was then administered. Only in Scottish football.
  10. I can see a 6:8 working. I had also thought about the busier cup/European schedule that the bigger teams typically have and how it might help address that. The lack of home/away symmetry with 3 games against opponents pre-split is also a fair point. If they treated this structure as one-season only, then the bottom 8 leading to 3 relegated teams might make the post-split fixtures a less desperate free for all for survival. I suspect any reconstruction is unlikely to be for one season anyway given the upheaval. Here's hoping.
  11. I saw both games and they were good for it. Much more galling for them though is the fact that, in a highly competitive league, they were bottom by only 2 points with a game in hand. Their game in hand was because of their good run in the Tunnocks Caramel Wafer Challenge Cup. I think it would be a complete travesty if they were relegated.
  12. It was Ross County and St Mirren that voted down reconstruction last time.
  13. I completely agree. ICT benefiting from reconstruction would be amazing. However I simply can't see it happening with a required 11-1 vote to carry it and TV money then being split between more clubs. The one immutable truth that can be drawn from last week's vote is money is everything to Scottish clubs, even sporting integrity can go hang when it comes to the crunch.
  14. You might be in luck. Because so many people changing jobs were falling through the gaps, they've changed the rules. Now, if your new employer told HMRC before 19th March that you had started with them, you could be furloughed.
